I'm a graduate student at UBC, living and loving Vancouver! Originally from the US, but slowly adjusting to the wonderful world of Canada.
I have known Sarah for over 8 years and have lived with her for 3 of those years. To echo what others have said, she is the best, most respectful roommate I have ever had. She is very neat, organized and always willing to pitch in to clean the common rooms. She is also very understanding of the different work/school schedules of those living with her. She is a great friend and a great person -- and even bakes excellent desserts for her roommates sometimes!
I've known Sarah since college when we were dormmates, so I can attest that what everyone else says is true: she's super friendly and kind, and keeps her living environment in excellent shape. She's one of my favorite people, and if you book her apartment, you could share in the joy!
I have been friends with Sarah for 3 years and can attest to the fact that she is a lovely, helpful, kind, and welcoming person. She is conscientious and tidy, but not over the top. She is very organized and on-top-of things, so you wouldn't need to worry about any details being forgotten. I've also visited her apartment, it's a great space in a great location - especially for the summer. You are near transit, a short walk to the beach, a quick bus ride to UBC, and on a main street with everything you could need. This place is a great find!
I lived with Sarah for one whole year right after graduating from undergrad. Needless to say, she was an awesome roommate! She kept her room super tidy and helped with the decorations for the common spaces. That, and she's an awe-tastic human being, and so it was always fun to hang out with her when we were both home together. I live on the east coast now and miss her...
As someone who has lived in the apartment, I can vouch for both the apartment and Sarah. First, it is a great apartment - good space, good light, clean and in good shape. The location is wonderful as well and you can easily get around Vancouver. Transit is very close, grocery stores and drug stores are within easy walking distance and there are tons of places close by to grab a bite. Finally, Sarah is a great person, she's super organized, honest and basically everything you could want when renting from someone.
